After picking up seven points in their first three games, the Wolves have picked up only two points in their last four games. Wout Weghorst has played well for Wolfsburg since joining the club in the summer from AZ Alkmaar. The towering Dutch striker has scored twice for Wolfsburg this season. Kovac has made several changes to Bayern since taking over for Jupp Heynckes. Under Heynckes, Bayern often used a 4-2-3-1 formation. However, Kovac has used a 4-3-3 and 4-1-4-1 formation. While the formation allows Bayern to get all of their attacking players on the field, it has left them exposed in the midfield defensively. Kovac has tried using Thiago as a defensive midfielder, with little success. Thiago is best deployed playing behind the strikers where he can use his passing ability to create chances. Playing further back exposes Thiago’s poor tackling skills.

It isn’t the blip you want before the champions come to town, but Kovac does at least have an almost fully fit squad at his disposal. Prior to the midweek cup action, you would’ve said Wolfsburg were the side with the momentum coming into this game.
